ROSHAN & 2ND IN COMMAND, UNITED!, FOR THE PEOPLE OF SRI LANKA, JOIN US!







These Sad Times was written right after the crash of flight 587. "I felt an incredible sadness after the crash of flight 587, mainly because it happened not to soon after 911, it was like New York City was hit with two big bombs all at the same time". "I don't think I've ever felt as sad as I did on that day". - 2nd In Command. These Sad Times includes an original radio mix, and "4 dynamic remixes!". "These Sad Times" (Hip-Hop & Reggae Remix), "These Sad Times" (R&B Remix), "These Sad Times" (Roshan Remix), and the powerful bonus cut "What You Know About Sad Times". Roshan and 2nd In Command are currently seeking a distributor to help distribute the single "These Sad Times" to major record store chains. The duo also plans to shoot a touching "Music Video!" For the song as well, and are currently seeking a film maker to do the job. They would also appreciate the help from radio to play the single and ad it to their playlist, to let listeners and the world, know about this most exciting project that will help raise millions of dollars for so many victims in Sri Lanka that truly need it now.

We all know the power of Hip-Hop and R&B music, and the money and attention it can generate. Our mission is to bring attention and raise money for this cause, through the power of music. If you would like to help in the relief efforts, than this is one CD truly worth purchasing, cause in doing so, you will be helping others, and that is something to be extremely proud of. All this, in the efforts to help raise money for the thousands of people affected by the Tsunami Tragedy.

Roshan and 2nd would like to make a plea to the entire world, to "not only ask what they can do, but also do what needs to be done, we need support from everyone" - 2nd In Command.

AN ICP PERSONAL NOTE:

"ICP like so many others, were deeply offended and appald, by the HOT 97 parody song to the tune of "We Are the World", which poked fun at the victims of the Tsunami tragedy that devastated Thailand, Sri Lanka, and other South East Asian countries. ICP was planning to present our relief song "These Sad Times" to the Hot 97 staion, as well as other radio stations to play and help advertise and promote the single to the public, to help support our relief project. But after hearing the news of the incensitive Tsunami parody which aired numerous times on the staion, we may have to rethink our innitial plan. The ICP family has been a big fan of HOT 97 for years, and we do not feel the incident was intentional on their part, if it is found that it was, then it makes the act even more terrible. We believe the ones who should be help responcible are the DJ's Miss Jones and Todd Lynn, for not chosing their humor wisely and as a result it has offended the entire world. I cannot believe it!, Here we are as a company, trying to doing something to ease the despair and suffering of the men, women and children of Sri Lanka, and you have two indivusuals who very well know the grave magnitude of this tragedy which has claimed hundreds and thousands of lives and instead of talikng the air to promote something positive, they choose to poke fun at Tsunami victims?. Where is the logic?, where is the reason?, where is the human compasion?, where is the sympathy?.

ICP also agrees that this incident had NOTHING to do with the 1st Amendment, and that freedom of speech is a right that protects people from GOVERNMENT attempts at censoring speech. We think the point of what hurt so many people around the world, is the mere lack of human compassion that was shown to a race of people who lost everything in a blink of an eye. Washed away in the Tsunami were mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, aunts, nieces, nephews and uncles, not to mention lively hood gone, lost and never to return again. We don't see how anyone could find comedy material from such and incident. It is a shame that the great image of HOT 97 is now tarnished due to the ignorance and irresponcibilty of others, who in our oppinion should have known better, to have chosen one of the worst tragedies in world history for comedy material. AMERICA IS NOT LAUGHING! And ICP agrees like so many others, that some heads should indeed roll for this blatent direspect of human compassion for the victims and the dead at the mighty hands of the December 26th 2004, TSUNAMI tragedy". - Richard D. Oliver

ROSHAN & 2ND IN COMMAND
UNITED!,

FOR THE PEOPLE OF SRI LANKA






2ND IN COMMAND!, A HOT EMERGING NEW ARTIST!

Originality + Talent + Genius =


2ND IN COMMAND

The Next Biggest Muti-Platinum Artist of the Decade!

THE WORLD IS NOT READY. . .

2ND IN COMMAND is a new up and coming recording artist in a class of his own! His name is just as powerful as his music and original style. He says that God is 1st In Command of all things and he is 2nd In Command, of his life and the center stage. Originality and versatility is the main focus of his music. He has mastered styles like R&B, Reggae, Rap, Love Ballads, as well as Positive and Conscience material. He is a rare artist, a diamond in the ruff you might say, who is multi-talented in his own right. Some have called him "Original", while others have called him a true "Genius!" Not only is 2nd In Command an excellent Artist, but he is a self-contained artist, who is also a magnificent songwriter, producer, arranger and impressionist as well! Overall, his music and live performances speak for themselves. Because of his acting ability, 2nd In Command has excellent stage presence. He can captivate an audience with his unique and original style, personality and presence, and you feel whatever he is saying. When starting out he always considered himself to be a professional Artist who just was not signed at the time. But, he knew it would happen eventually, and sure enough it did when the new up and coming record label discovered him and decided to sign him! Unfortunately the new indi label was faced with financial problems, and was unable to put out 2nd In Command's 1st single release "Freaky Mon". Although very disappointed, 2nd remains optimistic that he will find a new home with a good and reputable record company.

THE WORLD IS NOT READY. . .

2nd has performed at various clubs and schools in the New York Metropolitan Area such as The United Nations, Studio 54, Indigo Blues, Village Gate, LaGuardia Community College, Interboro Institute, Roberto Clemente State Park outdoor concert, Pace University Michael Schimmel Theater For The Arts and The Laurie Beechman Theater; just to name a few, as well as the "Kwanza Holiday Expo" at the renowned Jacobs Javits Center in NYC. He constantly receives an overwhelming response from audiences wherever he goes who have never heard him before. Thus, proving that he has the "magic" and he's soon to be IN COMMAND. 2ND IN COMMAND wrote, produced and arranged the tunes ORIGINALITY, WORK THOSE HIPS, EAST TO THE WEST COAST, BEAUTIFULLY MADE and THESE SAD TIMES, all of which you will hear on his "Hot" new CD demo!

"ORIGINALITY"

A high-energy ingenious song, destined to be a hit! And a Hip-Hop classic! It breaks down musical barriers as RUN D MC did with mixing Rock with Hip-Hop. A song that incorporates 4 music art forms! Hip-Hop, R&B, Reggae and Opera, yes Opera! Ingeniously arranged by 2nd's crafted hand, the song clearly shows the originality of this most talented artist. 2nd explodes on the track! Rapping about what he plans to accomplish in the industry, and his rough climb to the top. "Who got the flow to make the crowd go whoa at the end of a show,
2ND IN COMMAND!".

"WORK THOSE HIPS"

Is guaranteed to be a club banger and Mega Monster Summer hit! It incorporates Hip-Hop and Funk in an old blues type of style, and 2nd just rides the rhythm of the track lovely. Work Those Hips also shows 2nd In Command's comedic side, and pokes fun at the old folks era with their unique dances, like "cutting the rug" and "the funky chicken". The song also has a surprising rap change as well. A future hit! Which will have all the fine ladies in the clubs worldwide, working their hips!

"EAST TO THE WEST COAST"

A mad funky song! Guaranteed to get your head bopping with its catchy melody and hook which just brings the entire song to life. In the song 2nd talks about his attraction to all the fine honeys from the "East To The West Coast". The song is truly a club song, and features a powerful reggae change and laid back rap change as well. 2nd again rips the track in every way with lines like, "you keep it real with me, Il keep it real with you, so when we get to the crib, what we guan do, work it over the head board, and you'll be screaming my lord". 2nd is also a fan of Michael Jackson, so he took a stab at impersonating the king of pop on the track as well, it's quite interesting! 2nd oneday hopes to record the song with the king of pop on a remix cut, if the song is released as a single. This is truly a club song from the fellas to the all the fine ladies, from the "East To The West Coast".

"BEAUTIFULLY MADE"

A song for every woman who has ever felt that they were not beautiful. There are so many examples of beauty the society wants and feels that every woman should somehow measure up to. Many women give in to these pressures and relentlessly try extremely hard to enhance or improve their looks. All in an effort to feel better about themselves, and possibly attract that man of their dreams. But in this very touching and romantic song, 2nd In Command speaks of his special love for that special woman, who does not think she's beautiful, and who has never been told that she was beautiful. 2nd takes the time to tell this woman that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, and she is in fact very attractive and not ugly. 2nd lets her know the truth, that she is truly, wonderfully, and Beautifully Made. A true wedding song!, destined to be a "classic hit!". A song that a man can dedicate to the woman he loves, or the woman he yearns to love.

"THESE SAD TIMES"

A song dedicated to all the families and victims of the 2004 Tsunami Tragedy, 2nd In Command felt deeply led to do something to help those that have lost so much and so many. 2nd plans to donate 50% of the CD sales of this song to help in the relief efforts for the people of Sri Lanka. 2nd also plans to give, live performances that could raise even more money for the relief efforts. "I am just one person doing something, but isn't that the point? That everyone in the world at least do something?". "THESE SAD TIMES" is a touching song indeed, which truly comes from the soul of ones heart, it screams the pain of loss, but yet offers hope and strength, as well as the understanding of how God thinks. Why did God allow this to happen? Some might say, 2nd's says, to know God is to fear him. In "These Sad Times" 2nd takes a moment to have a conversation with God, to better understand why tragedy happens, and why so many innocent lives are lost as a result. 2nd seeks guidance from God like so many others, to better understand, and to cope with, "These Sad Times".

"THIS JUST CANT BE"

A Powerful, Heartfelt, and touching song with a hip hop and rock and roll feel, a song in dedication to all the victims, families and most bravest rescuers of the Tuesday September 11th 2001 World Trade Center Tragedy, of which 2nd's sister survived. 2nd expresses his personal feelings in this song of how the tragedy affected him on that day. Feeling so blessed to have his sister here with him, 2nd felt compelled like so many other Americans that he had to do something for the families of those who did not survive, which is one of the reasons he wrote and produced this magnificent song which is included with 12 other songs on a special 911 Tribute LP. The song chorus reads: "I was shocked!, I was sad!, I was mad!, I was angry!, cause we live!, in a land!, that is strong!, This Just Cant Be!, This Just Cant Be". 2nd In Command hopes the song "This Just Can't Be" will be played by radio everyday year to commemorate and remember all those who gave so much for so many on 911. 2nd also plans to donate a large portion of the CD sales of this LP to the victims and families of the September 11th WTC tragedy. 2nd also plans to perform songs from the album at various venues, and a portion of the ticket sales from those shows will also be donated to various World Trade Center relief organizations.

"RETALIATION" - a plea for the violence and bloodshed to stop in the middle East, and "GRAND MASTER", a special tribute to the late and greatest DJ of all times, THE ONE AND THE ONLY, Grand Master J, from RUN D MC.

2ND IN COMMAND spends a lot of his spare time playing his acoustic guitar which gives him inspiration for his songwriting and beautiful melodies. 2nd picked the guitar up 2 years ago and fell in love with it, and hasn't put it down since, and you will often hear an acoustic chord in some of his songs as well. He often works with his good friend Tony a professional guitarist for over 15 years, to help expand and develop his melodies and song concepts. 2nd is an artist who is patient and who is not afraid of hard work, and he truly loves a challenge, welcomes constructive criticism, and has been known to wear many hats when need be. 2nd spent nearly 2 years producing and developing a child recording group called "FLAVORS", but because of attitude problems from the group, which hampered the project, 2nd had no choice but to let them go. This was very hard for 2nd to do, but his belief is for anything to be successful, all parties involved must give 100 and 10%. 2nd plans to produce another child group, as well as produce and develop new up and coming talent.

2nd is often producing, writing and arranging songs for himself and others, in addition to getting his Production and Management Company I.C.P. (IN COMMAND PRODUCTIONS) off the ground. 2nd also enjoys fitness and cooking as well, and plans to get his certification as a personal trainer and open a fitness gym, he also plans to take a culinary course this spring of 2005. One of 2nd's many long-term goals is to own and operate a "Jamaican cafe" in New York City. 2ND IN COMMAND without a doubt, is indeed a force to reckon with in 2005! And he truly believes that has the talent to be right up there with the heavy hitters in the music industry, (like P. Diddy, Kanye West, Dr. Dre and others) if given the right opportunity for his talent to shine.

2nd In Command's main goal for himself and his production company ICP, (In Command Productions) is to release a single independantly, and later secure a good P&D deal with a major label, where he can crank out the hits on a bigger scale!. 2nd also wants to attain the necessary finances needed to give himself and ICP, the power to do other things to provide economic stability. This stability will come in the form of investments in ICP's Production, Management and Artist Development Services, The Command Recording Studio, Command Wear clothing line, ICP Television, Stage Plays & Films, ICP "Jamaican Cafe", The 6 Pack For Life Command Center and Fitness Gym, ICP Business and Commercial Jingle services, ICP Funny Greeting Card Service, 2 Cute & Wiley cat models, ICP Singles Connection, and ICP Photography, just to name a few.

All of 2nd In Command's tunes will give you an idea of the genius and "deep insight" and "talent" that this new up and coming recording artist has. 2ND IN COMMAND is truly multi-talented and a genius in his own right. With his love for all styles of music, he's a "Solo Mega-Entertainment powerhouse package!" in himself, who is destined to be a trendsetter, and who is truly "Original", and IN COMMAND of anything he touches.
